A one-day symposium precedes the two-day Summit on Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals, providing a snapshot of state-of-the-art conversion strategies, methods and challenges. Approaches spanning synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, cellular platforms, fermentation, bio-catalysis and thermochemical conversion, and post-fermentation will be covered. The symposium is intended to bring attendees up to date on the most innovative approaches as they enter the Summit to look at the broad economic, financial, logistic and corporate issues involved in growing a bio-based chemicals industry.
